Tune in to the radio hour to learn all about something that is near and dear to our hearts...Biological Soil Crust.
Join us as we open up the Colorado Plateau Classroom and attend an entertaining lecture by soil ecologist Jayne Belnap and learn all about this amazing life form, the ecosystem services it performs, and about efforts to restore it in areas it was destroyed.
The recording is courtesy of a great program put on in Aspen, CO called Naturalist Nights and was put on by the great folks at the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and recorded beautifully by The GrassRoots Community Network.
And as always friends remember...Don't Bust The Crust! (Photograph of soil crust in Arches National Park by Neal Herbert)
